Web Hosting FAQs
• What is web hosting?
A web site host provides space on a computer "out there" that will hold your web site so it may be accessed by anyone on the world wide web. When someone enters your Web address (URL) in their Web browser, it looks up the location of the computer associated with that domain name. This 'host' computer then sends the files that make up that particular web page to the person's computer that requested it. In other words, it's your server or host that makes your website available to the world.
• Can I host more than one domain on a hosting plan?

• What are the advantages of shared web hosting?
Most businesses cannot justify the costs of having a dedicated server, dedicated Internet connections and all the hardware that goes with it. The initial outlay runs into several thousand dollars, and ongoing necessary maintenance costs are steep as well. Web hosting companies enable such businesses to share the equipment necessary (and therefore the costs) to enable them to maintain an impressive Web presence at a fraction of the cost of setting it all up themselves. Furthermore, businesses need not invest in in-house expertise and technical staff to deal with all the installation and troubleshooting associated with computer hardware and software. Another, often-overlooked advantage is that serious web hosting companies upgrade their equipment and Internet connections as new technology emerges - this saves businesses the cost and trouble of having to write off obsolete equipment and also invest in replacements for it.
• Will my website be slow if I don't have a dedicated server and connections?
No. This will not be the case if you choose the right web hosting provider. A serious web hosting provider will not allow websites that hog bandwidth to be sharing with other websites. A serious provider will respond quickly to deal with possible problems and will take the necessary steps to anticipate others. Unfortunately, finding a serious hosting provider is often a painful process involving a few disappointments and frustration along the way.
